Mexican immigration poses challenges to our policies
and to our identity in a way nothing else has in the past.
- Samuel P. Huntington

Also, of course, for most of this time most Americans
thought of America as a white country with,
at best, only a very segregated and subordinate role for blacks.

We really only came around to accepting and integrating
the propositional dimension of identity into a concept
of ourselves at the time of the American Revolution.

while there may be an immigration problem,
it isn't really a serious problem.
The really serious problem is assimilation.
- Samuel P. Huntington

Immigrants are people who leave one country,

Finally, in my critique of the immigration image of America,
it is also important to know that we're not only a nation of immigrants,
but we are in some part a nation of emigrants,
which often gets neglected.
- Samuel P. Huntington

And the big question for the West, of course,
and to the Europeans is, what other countries,
which were formerly part of the Soviet bloc,
should be incorporated into western institutions?
- Samuel P. Huntington

And so in terms of territorial control,
in terms of economic preeminence, the western share
of the gross world product is declining as Asian societies
in particular develop economically.
- Samuel P. Huntington

including economic opportunities here and repression in Europe -
attracted subsequent generations of immigrants to this country.

on is the concept of America as a nation of immigrants.
That certainly is a partial truth.
But it is often assumed to be the total truth.
- Samuel P. Huntington

I think clearly the United States, as well as other western nations,
should stand by their commitments to human rights and
democracy and should try to influence other countries
to move in that direction.

The West hasn't reached its universal state as yet,
although its close to it, but it certainly has evolved
out of its warring state phase,
which it was in for a couple of centuries.

just as we were.

truths set forth in the Declaration.

the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.

for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
